David and his wife were nice. The appartment was ok and the location of the appartment was great!
Angela and Dave were always available for any suggestions about the city or for any doubts we have; they are very friendly.
The apartment is very comfortable, new and well furnished; it is located in a good position; in the same street you can find also the house of the movie "Dona Flor" by Jorge Amado.
We had a great time in Salvador.
I would definitely recommend David and his wife are great and attentive hosts! David provided detailed information about the neighborhood, precautions to take, and places to visit in the city. The location is perfect for site seeing and research. I only planned on staying for two weeks but will stay longer!
David and his wife were very attentive and made many helpful recommendations! The apartment is spacious, clean and close to the historical part of the city, Pelourinho. They were very friendly and always made sure that everything was all right. Great place to stay!
Хорошая квартира, чистая. Есть все что необходимо! Расположена близко к историческому центру города.
David is very welcoming and helpful, both for the tips and services when needed.
The appartment is clean and luminous, just consider taking a cab to come back there at night, Salvador's street are not the safest.
Great stay in general.
Great stay. Comfortable rooms, with fully equipped kitchen. The hosts were very helpful in pointing out places to go, does and don't when navigating the streets of Salvador. Would highly recommend David's place as a place to stay if you're going to Salvador, for the World Cup, or as a tourist visiting the pelourinho.
Fantastic clean, modern, quiet apartment close to the beautiful old town - Pelourinho. David was an amazing host who I highly recommend, he has great local knowledge, is super friendly and always available. We even recieved fruit and wine!
David is a truly WONDERFUL host! He picked us up at the airport, showed us around and helped us with everything we needed! We will always be grateful to have met him!!
The apartment was very clean and nicely furnished. It is just a few blocks to pelourinho. Since we unfortunately stayed in Salvador during the police strike we couldn't fully enjoy the city but with David's help we still had a nice stay and will surely come back!
Thank you David!!
The apartment is really nicely renovated and very comfortable and secure, although it could benefit from aircond as it was pretty warm during our stay. It's location is ideally suited to enjoy the local barzinhos and catch up with the locals. The internet speed was awesome and David was really helpful including an airport pickup, suggestions of places to see and restaurants etc. It was a little noisy at night (not traffic, just noisy locals) and you do have to cross a no-mans land to get to Pelo. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment.
